MUSEXPO 2016 has closed with its International Music Industry Awards in Los Angeles.
Universal Music Publishing Group chairman/CEO, Jody Gerson, won the top prize, being voted Executive Of The Year, while UK executives and companies also featured amongst the winners.
BMG SVP and Infectious Records founder Korda Marshall picked up A&R Executive Of The Year. In his acceptance speech, he thanked Music Week Awards-nominated artist manager Stephen Taverner of East City Management and dance producer/DJ Paul Oakenfold, both there as his guests.
Marshall also said Sat Bisla, president and founder of MUSEXPO organizer A&R Worldwide, was the man responsible for him still being in the music business, after he discovered The Temper Trap at MUSEXPO Europe in 2008. Music Week will partner with A&R Worldwide to bring MUSEXPO Europe back to London on September 18-20 this year.
The UK’s PRS For Music also picked up an award for Performing Rights Organisation Of The Year.
